How to Make Your Silent Search Users Talk: Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Tuesday, May 10, 2011
Breakout A
11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Actions speak louder than words. By listening to the actions per formed by users of your enterprise search systems, you can extract valuable insight into what is and is not working with you search offering. Direct user feedback is amazing, but is also usually hard to come by, biased or too simplistic to truly express a user’s complete state of mind. Tracking user actions, with the help of good and relevant statistics, is often more revealing than direct user feedback. In this presentation, Mr. Gaulin demonstrates how to leverage those user actions by identifying search failure and success patterns, and how to put in place the corresponding adjustments needed to improve your enterprise search system.
